12:02 pm
>> you heard that right. to tackle the major long-term issues. they want to trim automatic spending cuts. back on the self imposed budget cuts that were meant to force washington to get tough on spending. that is the mo. republicans have been expecting he would come through. give the lowest grade to republicans to ryan. he is proving he is a fiscal fake. it is his job to stand up and tell the truth. when he says we can raise spending for defense back to the or domestic, level that is evidence we're going in the wrong direction. >> that has to hurt. he was president reagan's top budget man. they're supposed to be in ryan's
12:03 pm
corner. stockman says going back on the sequestration is a load of, you decide. >> it is a washington beltway lie that we cannot live it with a six hundred billion of outlays for defense. 50% more than we had in 2000. we had no new industrial in the 200s with us since then billion more than bill kenton -- bill clinton left in today's real dollars. >> can you get behind a deal that comes out of the stocks? a total joke. i hope at least 70 people would understand if they do not get at entitlement reform it is going .o be far worse later the republicans would be right

12:09 pm
what is on the ceo's mind? he is thinking about the final version of the volcker rule. it is coming out this week. >> there's a possibility we are going to go too far. i'm not being a pessimist. i am being pretty pragmatic. i do think i know more about the markets then most. i am alarmed that it may be too far it may have some unintended issues that could be impactful. >> he is alarmed at the leverage ratios. >> and expresses i do not believe will be coming from banks. it may not come in financial services. maybe it is technology.
12:10 pm
it will be cybersecurity. the big crisis i do not think will be in an ansell services. >> number two is the blackrock president. he says it is time to be a little cautious. time, people are very concerned about their future investment. they have seen the stock market do pretty well. they are concerned about where bonds are. they're looking to squeeze more return out of their assets. how much more can they squeeze when they have the finger on the button? we have an institute that an exhaustiven way. over half of our senior portfolio managers think that lower growth for longer is where we're going to be. let me describe a little bit about what that means.
12:11 pm
people think they are diversified in their risk. bonds and stocks have , they may notted be as diversified in risk as they think. we are looking to get them to think about a 2.5% gdp growth which is fairly slow. stocks are being priced more about the price of momentum versus the earnings. revenues are not coming in where everybody thought. pretty top asng far as valuation go. they should look to diversify into other assets such as real estate.
12:12 pm
as i said, over half of our portfolio managers and for longer. next year to be a bit of a rates arer as far as and where the stock market goes. most importantly, people have to get invested. you cannot sit on the sidelines. while there is this uncertainty, there is about $10 trillion sitting in bank account earning almost zero. people into the market but in a much more diversified basket than just simple stocks and bonds. >> when you say low for longer, is that more a call on the economy or market or both? >> both. we think growth is going too slow for a longer time. we think the fed is going to keep monetary policy easy. short-term rates we think will
12:13 pm
remain where they are. longer term will budget up a bit. these are pretty high. we use a lot to choose out of that. we have a little bit more. we want to be a bit cautious for the longer-term right now. we want to make sure that people are using this diversification to understand that correlation may work against them. >> the rule next year will be a huge factor in how that plays out. we spoke with peter fisher as well. >> i think all over the world we see countries trying to make a handoff from monetary policy to fiscal policy. >> they would love to do that. >> they are trying to let go of the reins. they would like to not be the only game in town. that may be optimistic.
12:14 pm
i think we would like see fiscal policy pay a bigger role. they're trying to get a handoff to consumption of structural reform. central bankers are going to be important. they would love to be less important. onlyuld like to be the game in town. >> to a certain degree, markets are not letting them. the free moment about the obsession with tapering. and now we're looking as though we might see the taper this month perhaps. an unhealthy succession -- obsession? >> it is probably misguided. aper will take place in context. will the bank of japan and ecb try to offset whatever tightening comes? you want to think about that kind of upset.
12:15 pm
would've re: seen enough tents -- we have already seen enough where they are finding some way not to just have everyone upset on taper. i think it will be important but not the only game in town. fed successfully offset the fed of the taper on its own. the ecb to try to offset it themselves? it.hey are focused on whether they can remains to be seen. that forward guidance is a powerful tool. forward guidance is not as powerful as you would like. the bank of england has seen the market protest a little bit. time withhad a harder forward guidance leaning down. the fed will find some of that.
12:16 pm
one of the things they may consider is standing -- sending out. bottom line, where'd you put your money? here is dennis stockman. >> the biggest risk reward trade-off for long-term investment is japanese equities. >> still? >> absolutely. the japanese market was good to investors this year. we have been positive on japan for over a year. it was not magic. it was a combination of factors that were irresistible. valuation, earnings growth, political change, a clear of pessimisma lot giving them the rise for greater optimism. a chartt to bring up
12:17 pm
you provided us. earnings growth helps to explain what is going on in japan. pilingdy thinks they're into japanese equities because of abenomics. this does not explain everything. expansion in 2013, it has been less of a story in japan than any of the other world markets. it explains much more in the dozennd in europe than a japan. the earnings growth has really best. >> you can watch our exclusive interviews online at on coins.ur hands it is a lot harder than you thought. we will walk you through how right after the break.
